The purpose of our regular visits with members is to be helpful. If something is out of reach, we get it. If the member is forgetful, we offer reminders. If there's a spill, we clean it up. The member is in the driver's seat and we're there to support them in their independence.
Companions see how their members are doing and ask how they'd like to spend their time. Some members have asked companions to run through a series of questions: "Do you have any doctor's appointments coming up? Have you taken your medication?"
Members choose two meals from our menu for every visit, each prepared the night before. Companions transport the meals in coolers and place them in the fridge.
Grip strength is a predictor of longevity, and when it's good, it makes all the little things easier like opening jars or buttoning shirts. We give members ways to improve their grip strength every visit, and we measure their progress once a month.
Watch Dr. Bill Thomas talk about grip strength here.
After the visit is over, companions take notes on how members are doing, and send messages to members or their loved ones as appropriate. For instance, they might remind members about upcoming appointments or let family members know that a task has been taken care of.
